Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/9/16

3 Up

1. Madison Bumgarner - Atop the list this week is MadBum who solidified his legacy as the greatest post-season pitcher, ever. Seriously, EVER! His Wild Card game against the Mets was downright ridiculous. Quite frankly, the guy is probably the best big game pitcher I've ever seen in my lifetime. 

2. Baseball Playoffs - You all know I love October. And with the games that have occured, how can anyone deny this sport has the best postseason. Also, kudos to the country of Canada and Blue Jays fans. The Rogers Centre must be a horror for visiting teams. So much energy. 

3. 5 Year Old Not Happy with the UK - Kid's say the darnedest things. And this video is part of that...and some truth involved. Worth the watch for sure. 

3 Down

1. Hurricane Matthew on Haiti - Heartbreaking. Absolutely, heartbreaking. The country of Haiti has endured so much. The country needs help, and needs it fast. 

2. Second Presidential Debate - Disaster. Embarrassing. Ridiculous. I'll leave it at that. I'll have more in my review of the second Presidential debate soon. 

3. Trump Tapes - See the above with number two. Also, those bringing Mrs. Clinton's decision to stay with her husband after he had an affair as a defense for Trump's statements, are obviously missing the point and are blinded by party loyalty. Just my opinion. Really, this whole race sucks. I want it to be over, but I'm afraid that brings us closer to one of them being our President.

1. Aly Raisman - Following the bravery of Mckayla Maroney and others in the #MeToo campaign, Raisman has stepped forward as the charges pile up for sexual abuse by former USA Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar. By the way, shame on USA Gymnastics for continuing to allow this culture. I shudder to think what else lies in the world of Gymnastics. 
2. New York Times - In a world where journalism - real journalism - is becoming harder and harder to find, The Times continues to break stories left and right, and did so again this week with the Louis CK piece. I think we all are tired of journalism wrapped in identity politics, and yes, even "fake news". 
3. Kristaps Porzingis - Obviously, you all know how much I love the Unicorn. But seriously, how enjoyable is he to watch? And barring injury, he can only get better. Melo, who?

1. Sean Hannity - Seriously, I don't even know how this guy sleeps at night. And really, I'm not even sure what kind of person follows thi…

Pondering Picture #82

I snapped this photo in midtown Manhattan following a meeting with believe it or not, various professors from my alma mater of Cazenovia College. It was tremendous catching up with them all, especially considering it's been ten-plus years since I've seen them. 
Sometimes, honestly, it's almost like I forget I spent four years in upstate New York. And when I am reminded of it, often I am amazed in how a such a small town helped prepare me to tackle the big city, New York City - my home. 
Life is crazy.

The Pondering 10 - All-Time Favorite Championship Belts

With the WWE finally moving on from the ridiculousness that was the appearance of the WWE championship (Really, they kept a spinning title for eight years), and of course the unveiling the look of the title, it got the wheels turning on the best looks for championship belts. From pro wrestling, boxing (although, don't expect to see any on this list as they are usually ugly), and mixed martial arts, there are plenty of different models, types, and appearances that come with them. The following Pondering 10 list is my favorite all-time championship belts.
